ADA, Okla. - The Chickasaw Nation, the city of Ada and East Central University will present National Night Out from 6-9 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 5, on the East Central University campus mall area.

The nationally- recognized event gives Ada residents an opportunity to interact with several law enforcement agencies and emergency responders. Several other agencies and organizations also participate in the event.

Food, entertainment, educational and informative booths and fun games for children will highlight the evening. Guest musicians and special demonstrations are slated for the event.

All activities are free and open to the public.

National Night Out is a nationwide crime and drug prevention event designed to heighten awareness and strengthen participation in local anticrime efforts, and to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

National Night Out was introduced by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) in 1984 as a means of increasing participation in neighbor watch groups. Since its inception, the nationwide program has grown to reach 37 million people.

Ada is one of over 15,000 communities around the nation and Canada, and on military bases expected to take part in the event.

The 2008 Ada National Night Out was honored for the third consecutive year as one of the best in the United States. It was ranked #15 in cities with population less than 15,000 citizens.
